But yeah.... starting at L1 is really the only thing KDF NEEDS right now IMO...

Agreed, there *is* some filler in the Fed storyline, which is why I'm not suggesting that KDF get the same amount of missions as Fed.

Regarding ships. . .no, we're not more diverse. We have BoPs, raptors, battlecruisers, and carriers. The Federation has escorts, science ships, cruisers, and carriers. The Federation has a dedicated science ship class, the KDF doesn't (we have to make do with one-off ships that aren't quite as useful as full-fledged science ships). The Federation also now has a slight edge in escort-level ships due to the 5 tac-console ships and now the Andorian ship. The KDF has an edge with cruisers (which some Feddies aren't happy about, of course), and cloaks. Basically, I don't believe we have more 'diversity', at least not where it counts.

Yes, the faction needs to be expanded back out to 1-50. . .but when that happens, Cryptic needs to have missions to fill that gap. The reason the faction is only 25-50 right now is BECAUSE it didn't have enough content to really fill a full 50 levels. . .and the faction hasn't received enough since then to fill it. Rather than put in the resources to fill those gaps, Cryptic just compressed the faction. It was an admission of failure, IMO.

Hm, how would a Rator II faction integrate into other endgame content, such as Task Force Omega (STFs)?

Well, it is a big stretch for the Klingon empire right now, so I guess it would work for a RSE, too. But imagining D'Tan's Mol Rihann, which is allied with both other factions, makes it much more plausible, doesn't it?

But I guess those are details. As long as we just get a Romulan faction, I am happy with either solution.

ill also welcome ANY playable Romulan Faction..

but

imho the D'Tan's Romulans are not the true ones. They are reactionists, members of the unification movement, which other Romulans may consider as a weak and foolish.

I would be very happy when they let D'Tan do his thing and instead introduce a new planet with HQ (perhaps Rator III) where the leftovers of the previous Romulan government did establish a new kind of Senate.

This would also make sense, cause the Romulan Toons could also grind for the New Romulus reputation at D'Tan's, together with Omega Reputation in the STF's.. Although IF cryptic introduces a new Romulan Omega Set, also a third reputation will be needed so every faction gets to access all 3 Omega Sets (now Normal and Adapted).. (perhaps a PVP reputation would solve this problem)

Agreed, a lot of Romulans probably view D'Tan as a puppet to the Federation. The center of power should not lie with New Romulus, it's not nearly big enough or populous enough to justify that.

the Bottem line is that if theres not a playable ROMULAN FACTION in season 8 then im not playing i gess it really comes down to this i was expecting ROMULANS in season 7 and when it did not happen i stopped playing star trek and went back to wow but i do keep up on the forms and when u give us the Romulans as a playable faction i will come back untell then adios criptc im not the only player that feels this way u might wanna take that in to consideration before u denie everyone this and im not trying to hurt anyones feelings here but kdf im sick of u complaining u have the same stuff and some better then we do but the fact is the kdf was never ment to advance the did not advance in the movies or the show the romulans on the other hand is more advanced then the fed and that is what we want we want to explore and see how it is what its like to be a romulan kdf stop wineing u know your faction is complete your top rack is general ours is vise ad thats a lower rank then u the only diffrence is u get your top rank before us its about time to see romulans guys if u really want it as bad as i do u will stop playing star trek tell criptc gives the fans what they want !!!!

I was expecting ROMULANS in season 7 and when it did not happen i stopped playing Star Trek Online and went back to WoW, but I do keep up on the forms and when you give us the Romulans as a playable faction I will come back. Until then: adios, cryptic! I am not the only player that feels this way. You might want to take that in to consideration before you deny everyone this, and im not trying to hurt anyone's feelings here, but, KDF, I am sick of you complaining. You have the same stuff and some better then we do but the fact is the kdf was never meant to advance. They did not advance in the movies or the show. The Romulans, on the other hand, are more advanced than the Federation, and that is what we want. We want to explore and see how it is what its like to be a Romulan. KDF, stop whining! You know your faction is complete. Your top rank is Lieutenant General, ours is Vice Admiral, thats a lower rank then yours. The only difference is you get your top rank before us. Its about time to see romulans guys! If you really want it as bad as I do you will stop playing star trek till cryptic gives the fans what they want!
Thank you that you corrected your spelling. Without it, I could not even understand what you mean. Seriously.

Well, to be fair, the Klingon player top rank is one below the maximum rank in the force just like the Starfleet player top rank.

I agree with you that the pattern shown by some Klingon players is a bit disturbing... basically, someone talks about anything, regardless what it is, and earlier or later some guy will drop in and post "but the KDF is not finished!!!". They should not do that, and not only because real Klingons would laugh at that kind of behaviour.

I hope we Romulans will be better, once we get our faction. ^^
